    Bridge Dog

    No one seems to know where this dog came from or who he is waiting for.

    Awww - poor pooch. That's so sad.

    I'll bet someone just dumped him, and he's waiting for them to come back and get him. Such a shame that they can't trap and rescue him and find him a good home.

    Ahh, poor dog. I wonder if someone did dump him. I guess we will never know but it sure is sad that he waits there every day.

    I was thinking the same thing about darting him.........
    I'm sure that there are plenty of people that would want to give him a home.

    I hope they catch him so he doesn't get hit by a car.

    Never thought of darting him. I think the SPCA would do that and they could bring him to a vet's for care. I agree that someone would be willing to open up their home to him. I hope someone is leaving food on the bridge for him, this is so sad, reminds me of a movie I watched not long ago - about a dog waiting for his dead master...and darn if I can remember the name now.

    Here is a link to an article about a couple of other famous "dogs that waited".

    I have to say ... the dog on the bridge doesn't really look to be in bad shape. He could use a good brushing, but a lot of dogs could. He doesn't appear to be dirty or injured, and he certainly isn't thin. Someone is feeding him well, at any rate.

    "All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king." - J.R.R. Tolkien

    I have a dog barrier in my car so usually I'm able to try the trick of stopping my car, opening the door, and saying "wanna go for a ride". Sometimes that's all it takes to secure a dog and snap them out of their fear/timid state of mind and they jump right in.
